Rustic paradise 12 miles south of Carmel in north Big Sur, less than 1 mile east of Hwy 1. A 5 - 10 minute walk up a steep, zigzag trail through redwoods takes you to a sunny slope with lush gardens and charming, unique multilevel dwellings created by Big Sur artist/carpenter/gardener/owner/resident.
Renew and refresh yourself in a natural environment with spring water, ocean and sage-scented air, and simple amenities. Enchanting hillside gardens provide many places to relax and enjoy the ocean view above the redwood canopy alive with humming- birds, bees and butter flies
Unconventional and without commercial gloss, this is a place to experience the Big Sur lifestyle. Amenities include variable bedding options, towels, cooking utensils, dishware and cookware, a propane burner and water heater, fridge, and complimentary wifi internet access.
Bring good hiking shoes and be prepared to carry your food and personal supplies.
It is also recommended that first-time visitors arrive before sundown to navigate the trail and property.
Carmel and all its refinements are only a 15-minute drive away and the Big Sur valley 20 minutes away. Come and enjoy a totally unique, unusual experience in a secluded paradise off the beaten path.
The Unique Benefits of this Cabin: Experience the clean air of the redwood canyon, enjoy the temperate climate of the sea and the smell of sage-covered hills. You can unwind and find inspiration on the meandering trails through subtropical gardens amid the full spectrum of native microclimates --from the deep cool canyon bottom by the creek, to the grassy flat drum circle, through a watery willow glen, and higher up into the sun parched chaparral where a Round House and yoga deck exists for viewing the ocean and surrounding hills.
Why the Owner Chose Big Sur: 'Although ,I was born here ,I didn't grow up here. My parents brought me back here when I was 17 and said this would be a good place for me to live. I just started homesteading here and felt so lucky to be here and to build and garden and watch my son, Zack, grow up amid all this beauty. I never dreamed this small acreage would turn out to be such wonderland ' ~Don Loui
